Enjoy it all indoors in Riverside's recently remodeled dining room or on the expansive dining deck. Menus change seasonally, with fresh, locally-sourced, all-natural ingredients. An extensive award-winning wine list, a dozen brews on tap, and full bar offer the perfect complements for a relaxing meal. Riverside's menu is also served in Cebu lounge. Weekday happy hours at Cebu feature a special menu based on many of Riverside's specialties.

“Good times!”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Riverside and Cebu top my list for happy hour and dinner. The menu choices are excellent. my favorites include the chicken Caesar, grill burger, and pizza. If you are in hood river plan on enjoying an evening with the yummy grub & courteous knowledgeable staff.

“Fabulous view and good food”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

Good menu-my baked Mac and cheese was good, huge portion! Husband had lamb chops that were prepared just as requested. It was a cloudy evening but view was still amazing which was why we selected this spot. Service started out slow and inattentive but improved. Would definitely go back.

“Excellent food...slow service on Sunday.”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We stayed in the Best Western and our room came with free breakfast. We had a choice of about 10 items on the menu. A nice variety with something everyone in our group liked. The food was delicious and definitely made the the room/free breakfast an excellent value.

My only complaint would be the wait time on our visit Sunday morning (the other 2 mornings...service was very speedy!) On Sunday we had a 20 minute wait to be seated. Once we had a table, we waited over 30 minutes for a waitress to come take drink/food orders. We waited an additional 15 minutes before our drinks arrived. The meal was served shortly after that. Overall about 2 hours from start to finish. Much longer than we had planned for our departure day. The food was excellent though and I would highly recommend this restaurant. Our Sunday group was five ladies, everyone made a different choice from the menu and everyone was very pleased with their meal.

“The food was nothing special, and overpriced.”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

I had the macaroni and cheese for $20. I arrived cold in the middle, but after sending it back, it arrived hot. It was rather bland though and certainly the worst Mac and cheese I have had in a long time. My wife had a salad which was good. My sister had the mussels which were also unexceptional, and rather expensive. Overall, the view was nice, the service was great, but the food was fair to poor. I will not be going back again.

“Best Breakfast”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

We stayed in the Best Western where Riverside resides, so we thought we would try it for breakfast. It was wonderful! We have a 2 year old daughter and they were very accommodating for her. The river views were a nice addition to our meal. The food was fantastic, as was the service. We were only able to have breakfast there as we only stopped for one night, but it is a place that would be worth spending every meal.
